What I ate:

Taiwanese Meat Rice
  • 6.5/10
  • Disappointing
  • Lacked fatty umaminess
  • The meat was rough and the sauce was not done well
  • The rice was also not of good quality

Chicken Nugget with Fried Rice
  • 7/10
  • The chicken nuggets lacked crispiness
  • The inside of the chicken nugget was not juicy
  • The batter on the outside was no good
  • The fried rice – 6.5/10
  • Was not fried well-there were bits of rice that had not been incorporated into the soya sauce and were white
  • The fried rice just contained the heads and tails of vegetables

Deep Fried Red Pork
  • 7.5/10
  • Before marinating, they did not get rid of the tendons and tissues which made some parts of the pork very chewy
  • Nice balance of sweet and sour and salty
  • Nice and crispy
Summary: Not the best Taiwanese food in Vancouver. Many of their dishes are misses
